TRAIN SONG by Mandolin Orange

I never did have that fast train to take me down the line
I smell the smoke from the hot coal as the engine fires
If I could ask that engineer for one more mile and then I'll go
Just let the whistle wail and take it and slow

Oh, take me back to the railroad track and the sounds inside my mind
The rusty wheels and steel rails still whine
For I can hop that 909 and go back in time, some time ago
Just let the whistle wail and take it and slow

Won't you park my horse and buggy by some old lazy creek
Take my car to the graveyard and dig a hole real deep
Hauling rice and peas and wheat, they track on every street
Just let the whistle wail and give the rail my soul to keep

Mr Engineer, just one more mile and then I'll go......
Just let the whistle wail and take it and slow
Just let the whistle wail and take it and slow
